Impressive Religious Ceremony
This newsreel shows the Archbishop of Dublin blessing the new Church at Crooksling Sanatorium.
The Crooksling Sanatorium was established by the Dublin Joint Hospital Board, at Brittas, Dublin in 1911. It was founded to help prevent consumption (a term once used to describe diseases like TB). Here the bishop walks around the building with other clergymen sprinkling holy water as a crowd of people watch from a porch beside the door.
